Zyban does increase the chance of quitting smoking

Nicotine is a drug that is inhaled from the tobacco in cigarettes. It gets into the bloodstream, and stimulates the brain. Most regular smokers are addicted to nicotine. Even though you want to quit smoking, it can be difficult to succeed, because nicotine addiction is strong and hard to break. This is where bupropion can help.

Stopping smoking in somebody who smokes regularly causes a reduction of some chemicals in the brain, which leads to cravings, anxiety, irritability and other symptoms associated with ‘giving up’. Bupropion is thought to work by increasing the levels of these chemicals which then relieves the withdrawal symptoms that you get when you stop smoking.

Smoking cessation

There is evidence to suggest that bupropion is effective in helping reduce the severity of nicotine cravings and withdrawal symptoms. One study involving 707 smokers compared the effectiveness of 300 mg of bupropion daily for 7 weeks versus placebo. The researchers concluded that “bupropion in combination with counseling increased the abstinence rate compared with placebo, and was well tolerated.”
